We don't have one in working condition, and we're unlikely to attempt any work on multi-platter media
recovery any time soon.

I have three Pertec top-loading drives and several Diablo 30s, but haven't had time to try flux-level
recovery on several dozen high archival value targets, including what may be the only surviving Burroughs
B1700 packs.

LCM was working on an alternative approach to multi-platter media recovery but I've not heard anything
more about that in a while
